Our list of 15 best karaoke songs for people who can’t sing will make sure you never miss the opportunity to grab a mike and sing (and not make a complete fool out of yourself in the process).
A party isn’t a party if you don’t spice it up a little bit. And what better way to do it than call your squad to go out to a karaoke bar? Fun guaranteed. After a few drinks, you’ll be laughing at the others, laugh with the others, or even be amazed by someone’s vocal skills. If you’re a bit shy, or just don’t want to end up being a laughing stock, there are songs that can make you sound good. Actually, you probably ended up here after reading our 11 Best Karaoke Songs for People Who Can’t Sing in search for more suggestions. Don’t worry, these are the easiest karaoke songs for bad singers. For most of them you will be rapping or talking more than you’ll actually be singing, which undoubtedly makes them fall into the category. Whatever your singing (dis)abilities are, we’ll make your crowd ask for more. Another secret to our list is that we picked the songs that are so renowned, and so catchy and popular that your audience just won’t be able to resist and they’ll start to sing along. Preferably, their chorus will result in deafening your singing. Just make sure not to get too carried away. Remember those awkward scenes from movies in which people end up getting weird looks? Just don’t.
Now you may wonder how we obtained the list of easy songs to sing that make you sound good. Our search was lengthy, but worth it. We checked what’s on the menu at Bustle, XO Jane, Lucky Voice Karaoke, Musicaroo, Supercall, and even Marie Claire. Then we looked for the most prominent ones in all the lists to find easy karaoke songs for guys and girls. We also paid attention to Bustle‘s article on best songs to sing when you are drunk. Clearly, if you are intoxicated, the voice is almost sure to let you down, but if a drunk person can pull off those songs, so can you! Sober or not. The order of the songs is given according to how often they appeared on the sources’ websites, how regular is the singer or band in such lists, and if the song is closer to rapping than singing to the melody.
Whether you’re a boy or a girl, you’ll find something for your next performance in our list of 15 best karaoke songs for people who can’t sing.
15. “Everybody” by Backstreet Boys
“Everybodyy, yeaaaahhh…” – You’ll have them singing with you immediately. This boy band is common in similar lists. Another one you could give it a try with would be their “I Want It That Way”, or “As Long As You Love Me”.
14. “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper
An oldie, but a goldie. No girl squad can restrain from singing at the top of their lungs.
13. “Kiss From a Rose” by Seal
Here’s something for the guys again. If you wish to appear hopelessly romantic (and maybe even sexy), try singing this one.
12. “ABC” by Michael Jackson
The King of Pop original version, not the latest Easy to Love remix by Sigala. Just trust us and go with the genuine one.
11. “Pony” by Ginuwine
OK, this one is pretty easy to read from the screen (because it’s not really singing, is it), but the reason it’s not higher on the list is that if you’ll be singing in front of girls, they might have certain expectations. In other words, you’d better be hot. If you have a six pack to flash, this is your perfect song.
10. “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain
Something of an easy karaoke song for girls which would be the match to the male predecessor.
9. “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton
Phew, it was getting too hot in here (Nelly’s song was also one of the suggestions, but not as popular), so how about a lovely, girly singalong?
8. “Like A Virgin” by Madonna
If we have the King of Pop, there has to be the Queen. Madonna and her legendary song.
7. “No Scrubs” by TLC
The reason there might be more easy karaoke songs for females on the list lies in the fact that girls are more likely to sing karaoke (unless we’re talking Japanese businessmen). Singing “I don’t want no scrub/A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me”, etc. will have all the women nodding and shaking their heads with approval.
6. “Hey Ya” by Outcast
Back to the boys’ section. You just can’t go wrong with this one.
5. “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child
And again getting all romantic with best karaoke songs for people who can’t sing. Saying the name and rapping (sort of).
4. “Love Shack” by The B-52’s
“Looooove shaaack!” – Here’s something both sexes could sing together and look like they’re having fun. Hey, it’s easier when someone else can share your burden, right?
3. “Wannabe” by Spice Girls
When talking about easy karaoke songs for beginners, you simply can’t miss this girl power band. “Wannabe” or “Spice Up Your Life” are bound to appear.
2. “Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears
We just had to have the whole pop royal family. This song is merely a suggestion. “Toxic”, or “I Love Rock’n’Roll” are equally popular.
1. “I Love Rock’n’Roll” by Joanne Jet and the Blackhearts
Of course this song had to finish our list of 15 best karaoke songs for people who can’t sing. You can hardly find a list without it, and whichever version you opt for, Britney’s or Joanne’s, you definitely have a hit and the whole crowd singing:” I love rock n’ roll/So put another dime in the jukebox, baby”. (Baby)One more time: you’ll have the people singing, not you. Mission accomplished!
